Add highlights, cover gray hair, change color: hair dyes have many functions. However, certain colorings, in particular those which are composed with ammonia, can attack the hair fiber and make the hair quite fragile.

Hair coloring: avoid missteps
Changing your mind is not a trivial matter. A color cannot be chosen purely out of envy. It is particularly important to choose the shade that matches your skin color and that of the eyes. The wrong color can give us a duller complexion instead of highlighting us. Another not to absolutely avoid is to regularly color or color your hair at each interview with your hairdresser. The colors tend to be quite aggressive on the hair fiber. They can dry out the hair and make it much more fragile. By overloading the lengths with numerous colored pigments, the shine of the hair is reduced. The locks and highlights also make the hair more brittle and drier.
If you have colored hair, the biggest mistake to avoid is not maintaining the color . The maintenance of its color does not require regular coloring. It consists of a hair routine made of products suitable for colored or highlighted hair. Care for colored hair helps maintain color by maintaining color pigments , providing more uniformity and adding shine and suppleness. Better yet, colored products like shampoo for colored hair or conditioner will nourish the hair fiber that has been attacked by the coloring.

Choose your color according to your skin
Unfortunately, not all shades of coloring can suit us. The choice of your hair color is made with the help of several factors. That of our skin color is quite important. Note that you should always choose a color that sublimates your face and its shape. But we also make sure to take into account his natural skin color. Matching hair coloring and skin tone allows you to have a fairly natural and harmonious look.
For fairly pale skin and cold undertones, avoid choosing hair colors that will reduce the redness of the complexion . We therefore turn to colorings that have a fairly warm or even golden tone to highlight the cold complexion of the skin. Opt for colors such as golden blonde, chestnut or even red hair colors.
Regarding warm skin tones, we favor reddish, ashy tones or fairly cold tones. The choice remains quite wide: honey blond, beige chestnut, golden copper or dark brown. Dark or golden skin tones will love the coppery or mahogany shades that bring light and shine to the hair.
In addition to skin color, the look is a major and central asset of our face. Did you know that eye color can help you choose your hair color? Indeed, our hair tends to highlight our look and especially the color of our eyes. If you have blue eyes or green eyes, you can choose a copper color , or even completely red. The red color helps bring more light to green eyes or blue eyes. If your eyes are blue, gray or very light blue, you can also opt for slightly darker hair by favoring shades such as icy brown, chocolate brown or a simple chestnut. Golden shades also beautify blue eyes: honey blonde or Venetian blondeare great for blue eyes. For brown and brown eyes, warm colors like light brown, brown, mahogany or copper brown will be perfect to highlight them.

It will then be necessary to turn to a hairdressing professional who will carry out a discoloration. While it is possible to go from a light color to a much darker color, always think before taking the plunge. However, we advise to highlight the face, the skin but also the eyes, to opt for one or two shades lighter or darker than your natural color. This is perfect for a light , gradual and even change.
After your coloring and to maintain your coloring , we recommend that you use a specific treatment for colored hair.
